Kuala Lumpur's heavy traffic is famous, but the good news is that the city has an ambitious public transport system, and you can combine several to avoid or lessen the delays. The train lines go all around the city, including to the shopping centres, nightclubs, and Chinatown. Taxis rarely use the metre and the fares are expensive; a better option is car sharing like services like Uber or GrabCar.
It's warm and sunny, with considerable rainfall during the year, but particularly between October and April. The average temperature year-round fluctuates between 23°C (73°F) and 33°C (91°F).
